This Week On DVD and Blu-ray: December 7, 2010

6 December 2010 10:58 PM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

DVD Links: DVD News | Release Dates | New Dvds | Reviews | RSS Feed

Inception The week's obvious top choice for purchase is Christopher Nolan's latest crowd-pleaser. I actually have the "Extraction Mode" from the Blu-ray release playing as I write this up, but haven't yet had a chance to take a look at the second disc. However, I am particularly interested in the 44-minute long "Dreams: Cinema of the Subconscious" featurette on the second disc. This feature explores dream research and I would think in conjunction with the film would be rather intriguing.

I can tell you the image is exceptional and the DTS-hd soundtrack is equally up to task and should prove impressive on the right systems. If there's a 2010 film made for Blu-ray it's this one. I should have a full review soon. Cronos (Criterion Collection) This one I am almost done with my review already. I had never »

Sliff 2010: Wamg Interviews Stacy Keech

16 November 2010 5:30 PM, PST | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Interviewed by Tom Stockman

Conducted: November 12, 2010

Veteran actor Stacy Keach has been on stage and in front of the camera for well over fifty years. He’s performed in the highbrow ranks of Broadway, Shakespeare, and critically acclaimed films. He’s also participated in the lowbrow humor of Cheech and Chong and grindhouse quickies churned out by Italian exploitation auteurs. He’s worked for some of the great directors including John Huston, Walter Hill, John Carpenter, and Robert Altman, as well as playwright Arthur Miller. When he’s not performing, his charity work as chairman of the Cleft Palate Foundation keeps him busy. Stacy Keach was invited to St. Louis last weekend to receive an honorary Lifetime Achievement Award from Cinema St. Louis. Three of his films were screened including the classics Fat City and The Long Riders as well as his newest project Imbued, a film in which he »

Your Daily Fix Of Oscar: 11/9/10

9 November 2010 1:22 AM, PST | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

The Hollywood Reporter: Eriq Gardner reports that Sony Pictures Classics has been cleared to release its animated feature “The Illusionist” after a federal judge denied a restraining order request by Illusionist Distribution, LLC (the rights-holder of a 2006 live-action film of the same name that starred Edward Norton) that had sought to block the release of the new film because it “infringed on its trademark and would cause substantial consumer confusion.” Judge Dolly M. Gee called the claim “weak,” noting that “a wide variety of consumer products employ the term ‘illusionist,’ including another 1983 film, 14 books published since 1952, and thousands of magicians who perform under that description.”

Gold Derby: Tom O’Neil pens a letter to “The Kids Are All Right” star Julianne Moore, forcefully telling the four-time Oscar nominee that she should “immediately quit the best actress race and campaign in supporting” in order to boost the prospects of her co-star Annette Bening, »

Randy Jackson Hospitalized

16 June 2010 4:29 PM, PDT | National Ledger | See recent National Ledger news »

Randy Jackson has been hospitalized. The brother of the late pop legend Michael Jackson (not the American idol judge) was hospitalized Tuesday in Southern California, according to Associated Press.He is now waiting tests, according to the wire service report.  Unconfirmed reports claim it was a 'mild heart attack.'  Jackson has been busy, recently using social networking website Twitter to lash out at a planned auction of Michael Jackson memorabilia set to take place on the anniversary of the pop star’s death. Jackson hopes to stop a flood of items belonging to The King Of Pop from hitting the auction block on the anniversary of his death on June 25. Randy has called the proposed sale ‘distasteful’ and called into question its timing. “I was in the process of expressing how distasteful it is for Julien Auction House 2 hold an auction on the day my brother passed,” he wrote. »

Gable Unhappy With Jackson Cemetery Plans

19 May 2010 5:21 AM, PDT | WENN | See recent WENN news »

The grandson of Clark Gable is fighting Randy Jackson's plans to allow fans into the cemetery where Michael Jackson is interred on the first anniversary of the singer's death.

The King of Pop's younger brother Randy is asking officials to permit mourners to visit the star's tomb in a private section of Forest Lawn Memorial Park in Glendale, California, on 25 June.

In a series of posts on his Twitter.com page, he tells fans, "I'm meeting with Forest Lawn and the City of Glendale. Although they have strict rules, I'll do my best 2 (to) see if fans can visit & pay their respects beyond the gates of Forest Lawn, on the 25th."

But the plans have upset the family of screen legend Gable, who is buried in a nearby plot, as they want access to be restricted to relatives.

The Gone With The Wind star's grandson, Clark Gable III, tells TMZ.com the mausoleum "wouldn't be as sacred" if fans are allowed inside.

But author Ronald J. Fields, whose grandfather was funnyman W.C. Fields, is backing Jackson's plans, insisting members of the public should be allowed to pay their respects as it would be "moving to them". »

Adam Lambert Mentors on 'American Idol'

14 April 2010 2:23 PM, PDT | Momlogic | See recent Momlogic news »

He may have been last year's runner-up, but Adam Lambert is second to no one when it comes to compelling and inventive song rearrangements. He mentored the "Idols" last night ... and here's how they did.

momlogic's Vivian: When I learned that last night's guest mentor would be last year's "American Idol" runner-up, Adam Lambert, I was all fired up because he is the master of transforming arrangements to suit his vocal stylings (the makings of any true artist). And not for nothing, but this final nine -- with the exception of Big Mike and Crystal Bowersox -- kind of suck at that key element.

Quite fittingly, this week's surprise theme was the songs of Elvis Presley -- and in true Elvis style, the final nine flew to Las Vegas to consult with Elvis look-alike Lambert ... and experience a performance of The King's music, Cirque du Soliel style!

James Marsh's High Wire Act

4 February 2010 8:26 AM, PST | ifc.com | See recent IFC news »

Leaping from fiction to nonfiction and back again may be an astonishing directorial feat, but those who have followed British filmmaker James Marsh ("Wisconsin Death Trip," "The King") before he won his best documentary Oscar for "Man on Wire" last year know he's long led such a high-wire career.

For "The Red Riding Trilogy," screenwriter Tony Grisoni's thrilling three-film adaptation of David Peace's crime novels, Marsh directs the middle feature ("In the Year of Our Lord 1980," colloquially called "Red Riding: 1980"), as flanked by Julian Jarrold's "1974" and Anand Tucker's "1983." All set in provincial Northern England against a backdrop of serial killings, the films follow a thorny throughline of high-level corruption and the impunity that grossly keeps the wicked in power.

Marsh's mercilessly grim segment stars Paddy Considine as an unpopular by-the-book detective who, while investigating the real-life Yorkshire Ripper case, stumbles upon a cover-up conspiracy that »

The Notable Films of 2010: Part Eleven

One month, 280 films and 70,000 words later, my guide to the films of 2010 is now complete. I hope you've enjoyed reading it all - it's been utterly exhausting but an ultimately rewarding venture I've been single-handedly pulling together since early December. If you have liked it, my only request is that you help spread the word about it now that it's all done.

If you're a fellow blogger or site owner, please give it a plug on your site. If you're a reader, give it a mention on Facebook, Twitter or other online places you might venture. A lot of effort went into this, the greatest reward so far has been seeing it talked about and hearing your reactions. I'm glad many of you have gotten a lot of use out of the previous pages, so I hope you enjoy this final part:
